6u - Fun First. all players play all positions all season
8u - Fun First. All players need to own one outfield and one infield position to play each game all season. Justification is from a competitive standpoint you will always have a player in a position that knows what to do at that position at any moment during a game. Develop your players, don't just coach them.
10u - Fun First. Maximize your player’s ability at more than one position. Develop any new players to softball rotate them accordingly infield and outfield.
No player should sit more than one inning in a regular season game.
Coach will immediately send that email or relay that voicemail, text message to the board for reply back to the parent
